Ramaphosa thanks citizens for using Mandela Day to clean up and rebuild SA
- President Ramaphosa has thanked all South Africans who have been engaged in clean-up and rebuilding activities in Gauteng and KZN on Mandela Day
- The two provinces have been devastated following week-long public violence and looting
President Cyril Ramaphosa has applauded citizens who have lent a helping hand in the clean-up campaigns taking place across KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.
Ramaphosa has encouraged South Africans to use Mandela Day to provide food to the most vulnerable in society, to join clean-up drives, and to start the task of rebuilding.
This comes in the wake of violent unrest that gripped the country in the past week.
On Friday, the president the violence was a deliberate, coordinated, and well-planned attack on South Africa's democracy.
He labelled the events of the past week as "economic sabotage" and a failed attempt proviking a popular insurrection.
Ramaphosa has joined the clean-up efforts to mark Mandela Day on Sunday and thanked South Africans for defending the country's democracy.
